Re: need to add ram

The RAM is behind the system cover, and rather then try and explain things, as I seem to have a hard time doing with others, I will direct you to your user manual, it has instructions on upgrading the RAM.

If you've misplaced, or did not receive, your manual, it is available from the Sony Website, and a direct link to product home page is

Click on the VIAO User's Manual, it will pop open a new window and the manual will take a few mins to load. Be sure you have Adobe Reader installed to view the file as well. You will find a section marked 'Upgrading your VIAO' with a set of specific instructions to upgrade and change your RAM.

Hope this helps!

This is an indicator that the rams is damaged. Its not the mouse that freezing its the entire system keyboard etc,

the solution is to replace the rams. Open the side panel, remove the memory module (rams), Its located in a slot held together by 2 clips its a circuit board, thin and long in a slot cant miss it. But the exact same one and replace it.

I want to increase ram, what do I get

First, you have to find out the max of ram that you can add to your pc. Then go to the website and run a test where it will tell you what memory and how much you can add. If you decide to purchase the memory and after you recieved , open the case and locate the empty slop where the memory is going to be install. It should be the small slots not the white big ones. Then carefully open the case from the memory and then put i on the slot of the pc. Turn the pc on and then see if it recognize it

How do i add a stick of ram to my pc into the mother board

  1. Just find out the RAM inside and see carefully. In both end there are locks. Slighly push it outward both locks, and your RAM will be out.
  2. To insert, see care fully it will fit in only one way, see the DIMM connection point and your RAM stick carefully, you can easily recognize the right way. So just put it inside the slot and you will see lock will be automatically closed. be sure that lock were open before inserting the RAM Stick.
If any problem just ask me.
Please post your feed-back.

How to get the cover off

Hi, If all you want to do is add some more RAM you probably don't really need a motherboard diagram.
Do you know what sort of RAM you need is the first thing?

Before you open the PC make sure you will not be voiding any warranty that you may have had when you purchased it.

If you are just adding more of the same kind of RAM then you will have no problems. Open the box and locate the sticks of RAM sat in their slots you won't be able to miss them. (If you haven't seen RAM befoer then do an "image" search on Google for RAM and have a look, then you will find it easily.)

Next you carefully pop the little clips back from each end of the stick that you are removing. Then gently lift away from the board.

When putting the RAM back make sure to put it around the right way so that the little luggs fit into the base of the RAM. The base of the RAM will have little gaps where the luggs fit. Carefully align the RAM with the connections keeping it straight once it is sat in the correct position you will need to press quite firmly to get it to clip in. The clips on either end will click into place as you connect the RAM stick automatically so then you will know that you have seated it right.

Once you have added what you need boot up your system before closing the box to test the new RAM in case you have not seated any of the sticks properly.

Windows will recognise the updated RAM and will adjust accordingly. You can check that it is all recognised by going through "Control Panel" or "Settings" from the "Start" button and choosing "System". Then when that window comes up, near the bottom you should see where it tells you how much RAM is on the system along with your processor speed etc.

Hope this is helpful, let me know how you go
